Sounds like a possible lambda sensor on it's way out, does it hesitate during acceleration at all?
If it's not that, could be the coolant temp sensor playing up and overfuelling it.

On light throttle it’s a bit jerky but on full throttle seems to pull ok! I was going to change the map sensor tomorrow

Definitely lambda sensor. Mine went on the Xsara and did exactly the same although it did chuck the management light on.
